2 Claims.
This invention relates to grinding equipment
of the type employed in sharpening tools, and the
primary aim is the provision of such equipment
wherein the abrading stone is moved through its
path of travel by power driven elements, all to
the end that the operator may hold the tool being
sharpened in a stationary condition while the
cutting edge is being formed thereon.
One of the important objects of this invention
is to provide a mechanical grinding stone, the 10
illustrated, and the same comprises a table, gen
erally designated by the numeral I0, in the top
of which is formed a cavity I2 for the reception of
a number of gears I4, IB and I8 respectively.
Gear I6 is intermediate gears I4 and I8 and is
mounted upon a shaft 20 journalled in table I8
Vand extending vertically therethrough to a point
beneath table I0 where bevel gear 22 is affixed
thereto. This bevel gear 22 is in mesh with an
other bevel gear 24 on shaft 26, journalled in
bearing 28. A pulley wheel 30 on shaft 26 is the
medium through which power may be applied to
